Happy Monday Every or Happy as a Monday Can Be Everyone :) I love to cook, but my partner is a picky meat lover, I on the other hand will eat pretty much anything (except fresh Tomatoes & Liver) and don't need meat to make a meal.  On a regular basis, I cook a wonderful meal, we eat… MORE

About Me
Food has always been a big part of my famliy, my grandfather was my role model in the kitchen. He was the creator of so many of my famlies most treasured dishes. Being from New Orleans food fits into the fabric of our life style, it is the reason many people vist our city. For me, my family and friends the food at our tables rival the food served in some of our best restaurants, the home cook in Lousiana is truly the foundtion for Creole and Cajun cooking in in New Orleans. Im a Social Worker professionally, but my passion is Food! I dream of going to Culinary school, not that I want to own a restaurant, or even cook in one, I just want to work in a enviorment where I can express myself everyday creatively with food!
My favorite things to cook
Im excellant with creole, cajun and southern cooking, but I experiment with everything from Thai to Indian. I will cook anything once. I love asian and mexican as well. I love sushi (japanese) but have yet to try my hand at it, but im sure it's comming!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family traditions originated with my grandfather, he was amazing in the kitchen, he was a master at everything from gumbo,pralines,stuffed crabs, hogs head cheese, jambalya,red beans, veal and the list goes on and on. He was the best creole cook I have ever known, and I promise you, I know some great cooks!
My cooking triumphs
my most reacent triumphs are with baking, I have never been a baker, but after the Hurricane Katrina I shared an apartment with my mother and she loves homeade sweets, so I have tried my hand at everything from coconut cream pie to hevenly hash cake, to tres leche, and rum cake and I must say they have all been very good.
My cooking tragedies
CHESS PIE, but lets not get into that!
